Benefits of Rust-Oleum countertop paint include the cost savings over replacing old countertops, its resistance to moisture and scratches, and its antimicrobial protection that inhibits the growth of mold, mildew and other microbes that cause stains or odors. These qualities help it hold up well in the kitchen or bathroom.
Rust-Oleum countertop paint covers old or damaged plastic laminate surfaces on countertops, shelves and furniture. The paint comes in 12 tints, allowing coordination with the existing flooring and appliances. It also does not require the use of primer. It is washable and resistant to common household chemicals, making it fairly simple to clean and care for. A 1-quart can cover up to 25 linear feet of countertop.
